Finding your way around Canberra on a bike

The best way to find out about where to cycle in Canberra is to get a copy of the Canberra Bikeways Map. This map shows roads, bike paths and off road tracks and trails through the parks and forests. Its a must have item for locals and visitors to Canberra, and can even double up as a street map as well.

Phone 13ACT1 (ie 132881) for all enquiries or surf the ACT Government Directory for contacts

Where are the bike shops

The best way to find all the bike shops is to point to the Telstra Yellow Pages and search on "bicycles". This will get you to all the shops but won't tell you about bike hire places.
Check out the Canberra Cycles web site. Canberra Cycles helps organises the famous Fitz's Challenge bike ride, and is one of the oldest and best bike shops in Canberra.

The ACT Bicycle Superstore at Mitchell is the second bike shop in Canberra to go online.

And now Big B Bicycles, and the Bike Shed

Rideshop at Manuka opened in early 2000

Where can you hire bikes

It's hard to find the bike hire places by searching the Yellow Pages , as they are all mixed in with the bike shop information. So here are some of the bike hire places I know about.

Check out the cycling books in the Canberra public library with an on line search of the catalogue. All you need to do is dial 6207 7337 on your modem, and do a keyword search on 'bicycle'.  One day soon the library catalogue will be online, then it'll be easy!
